After the Gigantalax incident at Springtide Isle, the Fizzytopia region was abuzz with speculation as to the Dynamax phenomenon. Previously only known to occur within specific areas of the Galar region, it had now occurred on Fizzytopian shores, and this prompted people to wonder- would it happen again? Could Fizzytopia's Trainers Dynamax their own Pokémon? Where else in Fizzytopia was this even possible?

Some of those questions had started getting answers as of late. Rumors of an emerging Gym system began to circulate, before being outright confirmed later on. Several Gyms had already been established in the region, with numerous Trainers putting in their applications to be named Gym Leaders as well. And at the moment, though no formal Gym challenge had emerged, they were plenty busy- each Gym had been founded on what was known as a Power Spot- a site where Dynamax energy was released, and thus, where Dynamaxing was possible. And sometimes, wild Pokémon would succumb to this. Many of Fizzytopia's Trainers had signed up to receive email notifications of such instances, the better to be able to go and help.

Which was why, when Keith Masters heard his PokéGear going off while he and his girlfriend were healing up their Pokémon in the Sludge Wave Coast Pokémon Center, he was real damn quick to pull it out and look at it. "OK, raid boss approaching," he murmured, selecting the alarming email title to open the whole thing. 'Uh huh... category four... it's a Cacturne," he reported to Willa."

"Cacturne," Willa repeated, taking out her Pokédex and bringing up the relevant entry.

"Cacturne, the Scarecrow Pokémon. A Grass and Dark-type, and the evolved form of Cacnea," droned the device. "It stalks its prey in the desert, striking when the prey is exhausted and weak. It becomes active at night when the temperature in its desert home drops."

"Grass and Dark- Yanmega should do well," Willa smirked, putting away her Pokédex as Keith put away his PokéGear. "Let's be ready-"

"Um, Willa," interrupted the blue-eyed Banette behind the counter. "I'm sorry, but Yanmega and the others are gonna need a little extra time. They're still performing maintenance on the healing machine," Helena explained apologetically.

"Gah," grunted Willa. "That means I can't..." She gave a deep sigh, and gave Keith a look. "Can you do this yourself?" she asked. "I wish I could-"

But Keith smiled. "It's perfectly fine," he assured her. "You got the next one. Wish me luck." He plucked a Valentine Ball off his belt as he spoke. "Lily is exactly what that Cacturne doesn't want to go up agains- WAH!" he exclaimed as a Premier Ball on his belt burst open, letting out an Eevee into the open. "Leo? What the-" began Keith.

"Vui! Vee vee, vee vui!" Leo interrupted, looking up at Keith with a determined and serious expression.

Keith knew exactly what this was about, and sighed. He was about to ask Leo if he was sure, but stopped himself. Leo was sure. Leo had always been sure. He had never not been sure. He'd been given way more time than he ever wanted to think things through, and his stance never changed once. Perhaps it was time for Keith to finally admit that Leo knew what the hell he was doing. "...Alright, then," he conceded, digging a Fire Stone and a pair of TMs out of his bag. "There's no turning back, Leo- let's show 'em what we got."



Keith showed up at the Twisted Roots Gym, looking up in awe at the colossal conniving cactus. He was far from the first arrival, but he was here now, and ready for action, Premier Ball gripped in his hand. "Leo! Let's go!" he exclaimed, hurling the white sphere forward. And in a flash of light, there appeared the formidable and fluffy form of a freshly-evolved !

"Flaaaaaaaare!" Leo exclaimed, looking up at the raid boss. That Cacturne was huge. But it was also a Grass-type, and he was finally the ferocious Fire-type he always knew he was destined to be. They were ready. It was time to do this.

OOC: Entering this raid with Leo, who gets a Fire Stone, TM Flame Charge, and TM Flamethrower used on him in preparation.

What? Eevee is evolving!

Leo is the son of Cyanide and Pom. He has a fiery personality and can be more than a little hotheaded, always itching to rush into a battle, regardless of whether he actually stands a chance. An intense individual in pretty much every aspect of his life, not just in terms of his passion for battling and his appreciation for all things fiery, but also in terms of how he feels about his family. Anyone threatening any of Leo's loved ones will be met with the Flareon's full and considerable wrath. Considering his hotheaded personality and his appreciation of fire, it was never hard to guess which way he intended to evolve. It was always more of a question of if he was ready, and when the time came to take on a Dynamaxed Cacturne, Keith finally conceded that yes, Leo was ready to evolve.
